NFL Has Now Canceled All Four Vikings Preseason Games
After initially cancelling half of the league's preseason games, the NFL has now officially cancelled the entire preseason schedule.
On July 1st, the NFL announced the scrubbing of the first and fourth weeks of the preseason schedule, now throwing the second and third week of the schedule on the scrap pile, leaving some wondering if the NFL will play at all in 2020.
The preseason schedule for the Minnesota Vikings was to include the Houston Texans and Seattle Seahawks at home, and the Cleveland Browns and Cincinnati Bengals on the road.
Training camp for the Minnesota Vikings is set to start next week at the team's Eagan headquarters without fans. The Vikings held their first five training camps in Bemidji (1961-65) before making Mankato the team's "summer home" from 1966 through 2017, before moving to the team's Twin Cities Orthopedics Performance Center in Eagan in 2018.
The latest info from the NFL Players Union says that teams will start the season with rosters of 80 players. Today the Vikings have 87 players on their roster, which means thy'll have to give seven of them the boot before the start of the regular season.
As it stands now, the 2020 Minnesota Vikings will open the regular season on Sunday, September 13th at home against the Green Bay Packers.
